    In the FAQ section there is a section on user titles. Is G5 the highest title possible? It just says "etc" after G5. (Not that I will ever make it that far though). Has anyone actually got the G5 title?

    After 30k posts the Internet ends :p

    Probably it flips over to Intel CPUs. So a CoreDuo.

    And yes, mad jew has over 30k posts.

    Post 17 times a day for the next 5 years and you too can break that illustrious barrier.

    The guy has 32,000 posts, 17 a day, and then just disappeared suddenly?

    indeed, I guess I was really asking what is the next category up after G5, but since they are created as necessary no one has reached that high yet.. :p

    A lot more than 17 a day: that's the average since he joined. He's not posted much for over a year now. He got most of those posts in a year or so iirc!

    Corpulence and bad-breath, most likely.

    I'd guess anyone who reaches that high is also a mod, and that title trumps the other ones.

    The secret police got him, if he ever escapes he'll be back.

    Edit: you better hope you never post as much as him and get saddled with one of those behavior modification shock collars they use on dogs, or you'll probably cremate yourself.

    If you had a life to begin with.

    Hey, speaking of which, I'll probably be able to tell you in 2 years. :eek:

    He was posting 25 to 30 posts/day at one point.

    It's not his fault though. If people repaired their permissions without needing to be reminded, then....

    And to think I've been posting since May 2002 (nearly 7 years, wow!) and haven't made it to 1000 yet.

    Well, almost, but not quite.

    I wonder if I should have a 1000th post competition?
    :cool:

    If it continues as is, then we would have a processor for:
    - 35,000
    - 40,000
    - And so on.

    However, maybe it will stretch by 10 thousand at this point so we will have a processor for:

    - 40,000
    - 50,000
    - And so on.

    Thinking that the next titles will be:
    - Intel Core Duo or CD
    - Intel Core 2 Duo or C2D

    Then again, maybe those above 30,000 just disappear. :p

    Especially now since you can easily post from your iPhone. ;) :p :D

    Then again, maybe that is not what you had in mind. :D :D :D

    Why is there one number for just 5 posts? And also for another 5 posts.
